I Hate Lima Beans (And Other Questions)

Happy Leap Year! Anyone planning to make any proposals today?

You know I had to ask. I feel like I should rent the movie Leap Year for the occasion.





I was going to post the next homeschooling post today, but I had to acknowledge Leap Year, so that post will be up tomorrow. In the meantime, I thought I'd make a little more progress on these questions! These are from Rachel at Dove Of Snow.





1. What is your favorite breakfast food?

This depends largely on my mood. But currently I've really been liking Greek Yogurt with granola. If it's not that, it's the Santa Fe skillet at Village Inn! So good.

2. What is your least favorite food?

Lima beans! I can't stand lima beans. Thankfully they don't show up in too many dishes. I will say though that I have never quite got my taste back for pickles since being pregnant with Wyatt. I couldn't stand them while I was pregnant, and I still can't quite like them like I used to.

3. If you had to pick the worst color you could wear, what would that color be for you?

Beige/tan. Totally washes me out. I can do it in moderation, but it better be paired with a good color - definitely not solid beige. It's just not a good color to have near my face.

4. What is your favorite genre in books?

I love all kinds of books, but I really like Christian mystery or suspense. Historical fiction can be really good too. And sometimes I just get in the mood for some good, clean Christian chick-lit. But I'm sticking with mystery/suspense for my favorite.

5. What is your least favorite genre for movies?

Horror. I do not do horror movies. I could write a whole post about this, but I just see nothing edifying in that genre. And I'd prefer not to be jumping at shadows when the lights go out, thank you very much. The closest I've gotten to a horror movie is Jurassic Park or Jaws, and I don't watch the parts where people get eaten.

6. When was the last time you gave someone a hug? Who did you give it to? :-)

I like this question! The last time I gave someone a hug was Wyatt a couple hours ago before his nap, but I can hardly hold him without hugging him. Besides Wyatt, my hubby this morning when he left for work. He always comes and kisses me goodbye, and I give him an awkward, sleepy hug from where I lay under the covers.

7. When did you last see a sunrise?

Oh my, this is sad. I haven't intentionally awakened with the sun a long time. I did see a beautiful sunrise on the way to work a month and a half ago - the sky was all orange and pink, and it was lovely.

8. Can you say the alphabet backwards?

Pssht, no! I always laugh at that part in Jingle All The Way, because I would totally be there for ten minutes trying to get it right. I should learn it. It can't be that hard, right?

9. Where do you live? (again, no addresses please!)

I live in a rural area, but I'm only about an hour from the city, so I can still go shopping without too much hassle. I love living away from the city, but still being close enough to take advantage of the perks a bigger city has to offer. I don't generally say my state on this blog, so forgive my being vague.

10. Are you married or do you have a special someone?

I am married, to an amazing guy named Derek, and we're coming up on our fourth anniversary! That's weird for me to think about, because four years used to seem like such a long time. It's gone by pretty fast. I guess time flies when you're having fun!

11. Do you have any pets or wish that you did?

We do have pets, three dogs. I think we're a bit crazy for having three. We have a Yorkie named Ralphie (my fur-baby; see our engagement story, it's a good one), a Cairn terrior named Quincy (who's always running away, but we always seem to find her again), and a foxhound mix named Harvey (who is so annoying, but we love him anyway).


Those were fun questions to answer! Thanks Rachel!

Stay tuned for the next part of my homeschooling saga tomorrow!

I love Christian lit... not romance too much because sometimes it can be too cheesy. But mystery/thrillers yes! Have you read anything by Ted Dekker? He's one of my faves. His Circle books are amazing. And Adam is ridiculously scary. If you haven't picked up his stuff, you should!

I agree about horror movies! Before I was saved they didn't bother me, but now I find myself remembering creepy things from movies I saw YEARS ago. I don't think they are edifying in any way! Too twisted.

Hi Callie,

My name is Lindsay, and I am actually a childhood friend of Anna from Hoperoad (we grew up in the same church) which is how I found your blog!! I was homeschooled all the way too, and absolutely loved it! I am in vet school right now, really enjoy it, wish I could have a dog (but am just too busy with school so I settle for gerbils). Just thought I would introduce myself! I currently live in the city, but I would love to be in a living situation like yours where the city is accessible, but not too close!

I hate horror movies too! I used to love them, but I cannot even be in the room now!

Loved your post today! I hate lima beans too..they are just gross and oddly taste like sand, imo! What are some of your favorite christian mystery books? They sound like they'd be interesting..all I've ever seen are christian romance!
